I know you are no longer responding, but...
(and why cut it off when it is just getting interesting?)
Even presentation of 'facts' does not necessarily give a viewer 'truth' -- there are millions and millions of facts to be sorted, and based on the ones that someone chooses, really, any end result can be acheived. I believe there is such a thing as 'truth' and I also believe that I or you or anyone will never never be able to grasp it.

You do your best and try to reach YOUR end result as precisely and clearly as possible.

Jack2, making up all these rules, e.g. don't manipulate people words to mean the opposite of what they say, is making Prelinger less fun.

If we are not going to get sued here, let's do whatever we can with this footage. We have been blessed with hours upon hours of some poor schlub's 'truth,' so let's discuss and have some fun. Let's learn from each other and break some rules. The great ones always broke the rules, they didn't make new ones and get angry when other people didn't respect them.

Well, he can make up all the rules he wants to, because he can't actually enforce any of them.
